IBRAHIM STARS ON RETURN FOR THE 2s IN BOB WELTON CUP
After winning the toss and fielding, some tight bowling frustrated the hosts leaving them on 59-6 after 32 overs. Pop Robson was the pick of the bowlers with a great spell taking 4 for 9 from his 9 overs. Dean Gaffney ended with 3 for 26 and some suicidal running, along with sharp fielding from Ben Ibrahim, Liam Ironmonger and Tom Brumby meant Rasen finished 128 all out. In reply, Scott Matthews and Tom got us off to a flyer. Tom certainly wasnt hanging about and reached 33 after just 7 overs (he also has more lives than a cat). In typical 2s fashion, we didnt make life easy for ourselves and the middle order collapsed. Ben Ibrahim steadied the ship and played a patient and composed matching winning innings, ending 65 no.
